I am trying to relax and remember that I have no ability to affect the outcome of an election in a country that isn’t mine. I wish the effects of the decisions didn’t resonate across the world. I would like to say I don’t care and it has nothing to do with me, but I do care, and it affects all of us.
I just wish that what seems so obvious to me – basic human rights, dignity, and equality – were shared by more people. It breaks my heart that white women, once again, have followed their ingrained sexism and racism back down the Trump rabbit hole.
